Some people believe that the trifecta of scandals now engulfing the White House affords an opportunity to impeach President Obama. Those people are wrong. President Obama will serve out his term. To try to make it otherwise would be overreach.

Besides, there are bigger fish to fry.

President Obama isn’t the problem. The problem is big-government liberalism. And the opportunity to discredit that ideology is ripe.

Since the 2008 campaign, the president has sought to convince us that we can trust government and that a larger role for government in our daily lives will be good for us. But as the IRS scandal continues to unfold, we find out again that government not only can abuse its power, it has and it will.

When humans are given power over other humans, it is only a matter of time before that power is abused. Thus, the conservative argument for small government. The president’s sonorous assurances notwithstanding, the founders had it right in their understanding that government must be constrained.

If you haven’t yet connected the dots between the IRS that targets political opponents of the administration and the IRS that will act as enforcer of Obamacare, please go to a quiet room, turn off your cell phone, sit down, clear your mind and please, please try again.
